|We wanted an EC for our TV and
stereo equipment, but didn't want a
huge Armoire type. We also wanted to "hide" the electronics when not
in use so doors were needed. It had to go into the corner of our living
room so the design was a corner cabinet.
The answer was to put all the electronics on a pull out shelf arrangement with over travel slides. The slides are longer than the pull out unit plus they have enough over travel that despite the depth of the sliding door track, I can just see and reach behind to plug things in and all the wires are hidden behind the pullout. I did not install a fan, because the fit of the electronics leaves enough space for air circulation, plus there are air slots in the back panel.
The cabinet is made of red oak with red oak plywood for the interior hidden portions. The raised panels were done on my table saw with a little help from my router (I have instructions on my web site on how to do this). The doors are mounted on sliding rollers in plastic tracks. The inner doors and the outer doors are all the same width and height so they are inter changeable and pass behind one another. The inserts for the sliding doors are really easy to use and adjust for height if needed. The shelves in the pull out and side compartments are fully adjustable.
All the 45 degree angle bevels on the carcase pieces were easily done thanks to my Beal tilt box digital angle gauge. I was able to make the needed cuts separated by several days and lots of other 90 degree cuts and still get the angles perfect.
The stain is a Minwax Brazilian Rosewood stain and the finish is Deft semi gloss clear wood finish.
